Wartime R.A.F Lancaster Crew Photograph.
Wartime R.A.F Lancaster crew photograph mounted in its original wartime stand able glass mount (frame). The good quality clear photograph measures appox 15x9cm and the frame 22x17cm. The frame is good used condition with some damage to the black tape and the card stand is a little weak. However overall a good picture which dispalys well.
